Exclude GoogleUpdaterInternalService

Post by smithmich@uhcl.edu »

How do I exclude the GoogleUpdaterInternalService123.43 from service checks with a wildcard representing the numbers.
I can exclude the full service name like GoogleUpdaterInternalService123.45.67 but whenever someone updated it the service name changes to something like GoogleUpdaterInternalService123.56.789.
I tried excluding GoogleUpdaterInternalService^ but that does not seem to work.
This is what I have now but have to change the value often.
define command{
command_name check_some_services
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -t 60 -c CheckServiceState -a CheckAlc exclude=GoogleUpdaterInternalService122.0.6253.9 exclude=GoogleUpdaterService122.0.6253.9 exclude=$ARG1$ exclude=$ARG2$ exclude=$ARG3$ exclude=$ARG4$ exclude=$ARG5$
}

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi smithmich@uhcl.edu, thanks for reaching out.

Unfortunately NRPE does not currently support wildcards, in the exclude options.

I opened a feature request for NRPE. This is an open source project, so anyone can work on implementing this feature, not just our maintainer. If a programming resource is available to you, that would be the quickest way to get this ability. I did talk to the current maintainer and he said he would accept a patch that implements this feature.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

In case anyone searches for this topic:
Now working.
I was using the legacy CheckServiceStatus. I switched to the Check_Service and was able to filter the Google services like this:
command_line /check_nrpe -H -t 60 -c Check_Service -a "filter=name not like 'Google'" exclude=RemoteRegistry exclude=wuauserv exclude=$ARG1$ exclude=$ARG2$ exclude=$ARG3$ exclude=$ARG4$ exclude=$ARG5$ #

Were you able to open the nsclient.org link? I am seeing 503 error :(

Hi @sralinko,

I was able to get to the nsclient.org site today. It may have been down for maintenance.
